Exploring organic decay through sound

Lim, S. Y. L. (2019). Exploring organic decay through sound. (Unpublished Doctoral thesis, Guildhall School of Music and Drama)

Abstract

This portfolio consists of eight compositions, scores and recordings, and a commentary. The commentary provides some context for how a consideration of organic decay in our world has shaped my music both technically and aesthetically. It discusses how seeking to capture different aspects of organic decay has changed my approach to form, notation, the creative process and live performance over the duration of this research. This is mainly explored through reflections on individual works, ordered chronologically in terms of their completion to more effectively communicate the rationale behind these changes. However, in reality these works form a web with overlapping creative time frames and revisions in response to one another.
